First Friday Films at Catalina Museum for Art & History offers movie lovers the opportunity to enjoy popular and cult classic movies on the big screen under the stars in the Ackerman Family Amphitheater.

“Edward Scissorhands” (1990) is a fantasy romance telling the story of a scientist who builds an animated human being—the gentle Edward, played by Depp. However, the scientist dies before he can finish assembling Edward leaving the young man with scissor blades instead of hands. He lives in a castle assumed abandoned up on the hill until a loving suburban saleswoman Peg, played by Wiest, discovers Edward and takes him home.

There, he falls for Peg’s teen daughter Kin, played by Ryder.

Though at first accepted for his kindness and artistic talent, Edward’s hands eventually make him an outcast.

According to the critics: The first collaboration between Johnny Depp and Tim Burton, ”Edward Scissorhands” is a magical modern fairy tale with gothic overtones and a sweet center. (Rated PG-13)
